A car is driven east for a distance of 49 km, then north for 35 km, and then in a direction 33° east of north for 27 km. Draw the vector diagram and determine the total displacement of the car from its starting point.
What is the magnitude and direction?

We don't do graphs.
Add the three displacement vectors to get the total displacement.
I recommend adding the x (east) and y (north) components for the total displacement vector. You won't need a vector diagram to answer the problem (unless you really have to turn one in). 
A CAR IS 150 KM FROM EAST TO NORTH THE MAGNITUDE IS 13.4

45.0m
